Gmail API notes [Apr. 9th, 2011|07:05 am]

 Notes for future reference:
 
Gmail is one of the only google services that doesn't have a public http based api (no the read only atom feed doesn't count http://code.google.com/apis/gmail/docs/inbox_feed.html).
 
So I heckled a few googlers about this until they directed me here:  Gmail apps (andriod, etc) just use IMAP and then use hacky extensions to enable the special gmail functionality like labels.  http://code.google.com/apis/gmail/imap/#x-gm-labels
